Malala Yousafzai is off to college and asked for packing help this weekend. 

The 20-year-old activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner will attend Oxford University this year as a freshman studying philosophy, politics, and economics. Yousafzai, a staunch advocate for global education, turned to Twitter on Saturday morning to ask her followers for their best packing advice. 

“Packing for university,” she wrote on Twitter. “Any tips? Advice? Dos and dont’s?”

Others gave Malala advice on things to improve dorm life, like flip flops for the shower and adhesives for dorm room walls.
